Here’s a closer look at the Tea Party box…….
July Theme: Tea Party
Have a party you need to host? Been thinking of throwing a little something? We say, go for it! And while you’re at it, why not make it a Tea Time Affair? This box gets you all ready and inspired to do just that.
Get ready for some incredible artisan-made items that will take your breath away!
Striped Ice Tea Pitcher, Mexico (Retail $50 each)
Think of your new pitcher as a traveling centrepiece, its beautiful form creating a lovely scene wherever you set it down. Your pitcher’s form is also functional, its wide curves makes it easy to hold and voluminous enough that you don’t have to keep refilling.
- Measurements: 9″ x 9″, including handle
- Materials: Hand Blown Glass
I’m tempted to say this is the most beautiful piece we have ever received from GlobeIn and we have received some amazing pieces over the years. I love everything about this pitcher, the weight of the glass, the stripes, the size, the handle…..everything is perfect. I can see myself using this on a daily basis whether it be for water, tea, juice, flowers……I absolutely love it.
Hanging Lantern, India (Retail $20 each)
Place a candle inside and bring some romance to an evening tea time.
- Measurements: 7″ x 3″ x 3″
- Materials: Aluminum and glass
I’m not totally in love with this lantern, I kind of wish it was white, but I do love the idea of using it as a centrepiece or to set the mood. It will also be perfect for Christmas so I might save it for that.
Pom-Pom Garland, Nepal (Retail $20 each)
Nothing says party-time like some pom-poms. Even before they arrived at your door, these festive garlands have been at the centre of family gathering. They were strung together by families, working together in the evenings after long days of school and work to bring some extra prosperity to their households.
- Measurements: 5ft long
- Materials: Nepalese Felt
I absolutely love the look of pom-pom garland. I keep meaning to pick a few up. They make for great decorations but I also like the idea of adding them to a shelf or coffee table tray to add a little extra color and style.
Tea Light Candles, Haiti (Retail $5 each)
The careful craftsmanship of your new tea lights demonstrates the talent and resilience of women living in distressed regions of the world, and the dedication of these women toward becoming catalysts for social and economic change in their communities.
- Includes: Set of 2 candles
- Measurements: 1.5′ x 0.16′
- Materials: Beeswax
I love that they included a set of candles to go with the Lantern. It’s small details like this that I appreciate most.
Tulsi Tea, India (Retail $22 each)
The central piece to any tea party is, aside from the tiny sandwiches, the tea! Your tea was grown by a man named Someswar in the prominent tea region of Assam. Brew up some iced tea and serve it in your pitcher.
- Measurements: 70g bag
- Materials: 100% organic Tulsi green tea leaves
Summer is in full swing and iced tea is a must. I will definitely be using this, along with my new pitcher, to keep my fridge stocked with ice tea for the next couple months.
GlobeIn Artisan Box Review July 2018 – Final Thoughts
The July GlobeIn Artisan Box had a great theme and beautiful items. The pitcher alone is reason enough to subscribe to this box. It’s beyond gorgeous and I know I will be using it on a regular basis. In addition to that we received tea to go with our new pitcher, a gorgeous lantern perfect for decorating your patio table and pom-pom garland to add some cold to your next summer party. A gorgeous box that supports a great cause…..what’s not to love?
